This Guidebook on Best Practice Monitoring, Verification and Enforcement (MV&E) for Appliance Standards & Labelling provides practical information on compliance frameworks based on the experiences of existing S&L programmes. It complements the previous guidebook and is designed as a manual for policy makers, programme administrators, and others involved in the design and implementation of S&L programmes worldwide.
This study analyzes the financial impacts on consumers of minimum efficiency performance standards (MEPS) for appliances that could be implemented in 13 major economies around the world.
This document provides an overview of the scope, applications, scenario definitions, and results of LBNL’s Bottom Up Energy Analysis System (BUENAS), as well as the details of the methodology used to construct national level energy demand scenarios.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are in the process of establishing test procedures for televisions. Therefore, CLASP is investigating the efficacy of the current test procedures used for television energy efficiency to identify improvements that can be made.
This cooling benchmarking study, which was funded by the Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP), intends to provide policy makers and energy efficiency (EE) program managers with tools allowing for the comparison of the efficiency of air conditioning (AC) products under the different test procedures and EE metrics that are currently used in major world economies.
The objective of this report is to assess the test procedures and minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light emitting diode (LED) lamps across multiple regions including: Africa, Asia-Pacific, China, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America.
This report presents findings of an extensive investigation of the energy efficiency standards and labelling programs in place in China, the EU, India, Japan, and the USA.
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations Foundation (UNF) recognize the need to support policy makers in their efforts to implement energy-efficiency standards and labeling programs and have developed this guidebook, together with the Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP), as a primary reference.
